Kriti Sanon on exploring the space behind the camera in Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey
Basking in the new found love in front of the camera, Kriti Sanon is all set to explore the world behind it. The Akshay Kumar-starrer Bachchan Pandey sees the actor playing a filmmaker. “Playing a director is interesting and something I’ve never done before,” says Sanon of the Farhad Samji directorial film.

After finishing up a schedule in Jaisalmer, the actor says, “It is a lot of fun to be in the creative space of a director and truly feel what is running in his/her head. There is a lot to learn [about the] character [and channel] her strength. I play a Mumbai girl, who is used to making her own decisions,” adds the actor, who will be sharing screen space with Jacqueline Fernandez, Arshad Warsi and her Bareilly Ki Barfi co-star Pankaj Tripathi.]
Juggling between Om Raut’s Adipurush, where she plays Sita and Bhediya opposite Varun Dhawan, Sanon says she is yet to wrap up Bachchan Pandey. “We have a lot of time in hand as the film is releasing in January 2022. A major chunk of the film has been wrapped up. I still have about a week’s schedule left, which will be completed in Mumbai,” she adds.
